The Selectmen explained that this is necessary to work uninter-

the roads cleared. 

At the suggestion of Toni Pease, let the records show that the Town 
express appreciation to Robin Taylor for his three years service as a 
Selectman. 

The question was raised as to the tax compensation from the Fed- 
eral Government for the land taken for the Appalachian Trail. It was

ATTENTION TO PET OWNERS S! 

EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1,1993. It is now mandatory that cats receive 
rabies protection. When I talked with the office of the State Veterinary, I 
was told that the first rabies shot would be good for one year, after which 
a three year vaccine would be given. 

A RABIES CLINIC IS SCHEDULED WITH THE OXBOW VERTERINARY 
PERSONNEL FOR MARCH 10, FROM 6:30 TO 8 P.M. AT THE ORFORD FIRE 
STATION. 

APRIL IS DOG LICENSING MONTH 

If you would like to license by mail, please give me a call. If the 
rabies is current and your pet was licensed last year, I would be able to 
mail out the license upon receipt of the proper fee. 

FEES 

Male or Female $7.00 

Neutered animals 4.50 

Senior Citizens: for one animal 2.00 

thereafter, the regular fee. 

GROUPS 
a. If the number of dogs does not exceed 5, the fee shall be $12.00. 
b If the number exceeds 5 but does not exceed 10, the fee shall be 
$20.00. 

c. If the number exceeds 10, but does not exceed 25, the fee shall be 
$25.00, and 

d. There shall be an additional fee of $1.00 for each dog in excess of 
25. 

PROOF OF RABIES AND NEUTERING IS REQUIRED

RABIES 

Rabies is a viral disease which attacks the central nervous system in 
mammals including wild animals, pets and humans. If untreated, it is 
almost always fatal. 

Rabies is spread from a bite or contact with the saliva of an infected 
animal. The particular animal that carries the mid-Atlantic strain, now 
found in New Hampshire, is the racoon, but rabies is also spread by all 
mammals. It cannot be spread by birds, snakes, fish or reptiles. 

An indication that an animal has rabies is a noted change in its be- 
havior such as the normal loss of fear of humans or a display of hostile 
actions. Rabies is impossible to diagnose without a medical test. 

Rabies is preventable. Dogs, cats, horses and other domestic animals 
can be vaccinated against the disease. If the vaccinated pet comes into 
contact with an infected animal, the disease will not spread. However, 
humans that come into contact with the saliva from a rabid animal or 
their pet can get the disease. Humans can be given a series of (5) shots 
after infection but if left untreated, it is fatal. 

If exposed to saliva from any animal which may be suspected of car- 
rying rabies, the wound or infected area should be soaked for 10 minutes 
in soap and water prior to going to an emergency room of a hospital. 

New Hampshire Laws 

RSA 436:99, II— VI requires that ALL DOGS AND CATS have rabies 
shots once they have reached the age of 3 months. This became effec- 
tive on January 1, 1993. 

Rabies Clinic 

A "RABIES CLINIC" has been scheduled to be held on Wednesday, 
March 10, 1993, between 6:30 and 8:00 P.M. at the Orford Fire Station. 
This has been arranged with the Oxbow Veterinary Clinic of Bradford, 
Vermont and the Orford Town Clerk, Orford Fire Department, and Orford 
Police Department. Attendance at this program is not only convenient but, 
offers these shots at a reduced rate. 

Dog Rabies $ 5.00 

Dogs EPI Vaccine 10.00 

(distemper, etc.) 
Cats Rabies & Distemper 10.00 

Cats Leukemia 12.00 

If people see an animal they suspect of being rabid, contact the 
Orford Police Department or the Fish and Game Department; in the case 
of a domestic animal, contact the local veterinary.

SELECTMEN'S REPORT 

The year 1992 began as another snowless New Hampshire winter pro- 
viding the road crew with an endless challenge thawing culverts. After 
town meeting, we were hit with heavy rains which caused extensive 
flooding and road washouts. The Jacob's Brook area was especially hard 
hit with ice jams causing severe flooding along Route 25A. All town roads 
suffered some damage due to the runoffs. Archertown Road received the 
most damage with sections of the pavement being washed away. 

The majority of the road crew work during 1992 was in repairing the 
spring washouts. Disaster aid was applied for but the total of the damage 
to surrounding towns did not meet the minimum level required to meet the 
disaster assistance criteria. 

After the gravel roads were reconstructed during the spring and 
summer months, work began on the Archertown Road. After ditching and 
replacing of culverts was completed, approximately one-half mile section 
was repaved using material known as pug mix. Many towns are using this 
pug mix as it is less expensive than hot top and has the ability to give 
when the road heaves due to frost. 

Beavers were especially active in town this year and had to be trap- 
ped out of areas on Indian Pond Road, Orfordville Road and Archertown 
Road. 

At the 1992 Town Meeting, the town adopted the model flood plain 
ordinance. Afterward, the Selectmen adopted a simplified permitting proc- 
ess for applicants to comply with the new ordinance. 

An emergency management plan was approved by the Selectmen who 
would like to thank Rita Pease for the hard work she put into this project. 
An employee handbook was completed by the Selectmen. On the recom- 
mendation of the Parks & Playground Committee, the Selectmen adopted 
a policy for use of the community field. 

A grant for trees was applied for and subsequently approved by the 
SBA for a total of $3,600. In order to comply with the new current use 
criteria, the Selectmen held a public hearing on the matter and then 
drafted an application for current use owners to assist them in meeting 
the new requirements. 

Title to the Orfordville school was cleared and the town finally re- 
ceived the deed to the property. The town will be asked to vote on a 
proposal by the Orfordville Building Committee to determine whether the 
town offices will be relocated to the 'Ville School. 

No progress has been made with regards to cable TV being installed in 
Orford by Grassroots Cable Company. The Selectmen have maintained 
contact with the Grassroots Cable Co. in order to get updates. However, 
the tight credit situation that many companies face has adversely im- 
pacted this project. 

The Selectmen sold by sealed bid the Chevy dumptruck, the old trac- 
tor and gang mower and two Sunday Mountain lots. 

During 1992 the town purchased a new one ton truck. The road agent 
built a sand screener for the purpose of screening sand for the pug mix, 
as well as to screen sand for winter use. A new insulated, overhead door 
was installed at the town garage. New steps were built for the recycling 



- 54 - 



trailer to facilitate safe handling of recyclables. A new wide carriage 
computer printer was purchased for the Town Office. In a continuing effort 
to safeguard the records of the town, book number two of the town 
records was restored. 

The Orford Police Department continued its service-oriented work in 
1992. The Selectmen feel that Chief Hal Jarvis' organization of programs 
such as DARE, Hunter Safety and Bike Rodeos and his coverage of com- 
munity activities are important components of police work in town. 

In an effort to present a responsible budget to the town voters, the 
Selectmen, in cooperation with the town Budget Advisory Committee, are 
presenting a budget for 1993 that is slightly less than the 1992 budget. 
The 1993 budget continues the town's efforts to adequately fund capital 
reserve accounts in order to plan for future needs of the town. The major 
projects which the budget anticipates in 1993 include converting the 
former 'Ville school to town office use, the building of a fuel tank bunker 
at the town garage and the purchase of a diesel and a gasoline tank. Not 
only will this allow the town to remove the underground gas tank, but it 
will provide for significant savings in the cost of diesel fuel. 

Town government works only with the help and assistance of many 
volunteers and the Selectmen would like to acknowledge with grateful ap- 
preciation the efforts of those who selflessly gave of their time. A special 
thank you goes to all of the election officials who experienced an ex- 
tremely busy year with some of the highest voter turnouts in recent his- 
tory.

A THANK YOU TO ROBB THOMSON 

This year we again say farewell and thank you to a single term 
Selectman. Robb Thomson is completing his three year term at this year's 
Town Meeting. 

Robb came onto the Board when the Town and its townspeople had to 
work hard at managing their fiscal affairs. The Town has been able to 
meet this challenge the past couple of years by tracking its money 
carefully. Robb helped make this easier by placing our accounts into the 
computer. 

Robb was also instrumental in the development of the Capital Im- 
provement Program. This program enables the town to plan for and spread 
out the cost of major purchases over several years. 

The Town will also be receiving matching funds that will allow us to 
continue planting trees on the Common and Mall. This grant proposal was 
authored by Robb. 

As a member of the Orfordville Building Committee, the groundwork 
has been laid for the anticipated move of the town's offices to the old 
'Ville school and a comprehensive exam of the best uses for our remaining 
buildings in the 'Ville. 

We want to thank you, Robb, for everything you have done over the 
past three years.

ORFORD CEMETERY COMMISSION 

The Cemetery Commission wishes to thank Fay and Sally Bean for all 
the work they did for us this past summer. Our Cemeteries were kept in 
fine shape. 

We are proud of the work done by Winston Doe and his men cleaning, 
mending and straightening the stones in the West Cemetery. This is cost- 
ly work but we feel it is necessary and plan now to continue until all the 
cemeteries are completed

PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS REPORT 



Another typical year of expenses from mowing, collection of garbage 
and supplying chemical toilets to the Town's park and playgrounds. 

A new planter was built at the community field to surround the Hazen 
Morey monument. New Athletic fence was purchased for the Little League 
field and new docks are in the planning for the Indian Pond swim pro- 
gram. 

Special thanks to Paul Dalton and the many volunteers in the ski pro- 
gram, Laurie Mack and Peggy Villar for the swim program and Randy Fil- 
lian and Chase Kling for improving the Upper Baker Pond beach.

ORFORD SKI PROGRAM REPORT - 1992-93 

The purpose of the program is to offer school children the opportunity 
to learn the fundamentals of alpine skiing. We offer beginner, intermediate 
and advance instruction on eight (8) consecutive Wednesday afternoons 
from the beginning of January thru mid-March at the Skiway in Lyme, 
including bus transportation to and from the Skiway. The program is 
funded primarily by the participants (65%), the Orford Recreation Dept. 
(25%) and a private fund-raiser raffle of donated prizes (10%). Cost 
increases this year at the Skiway (25%) and bus transportation (50%) 
were absorbed by adjusting the student fee, reducing instructor lessons 
and a successful raffle. 

The 1991-92 year saw program participation increase from the tradi- 
tional 60-65 to 75 children, 21 instructors and many additional weekly 
volunteers. The 1992-93 season is off to another excellent start with 72 
students but our volunteer instructors have decreased to 14. Nonetheless 
we are still able to offer the full program from the first time skier to 
advanced instructions. Again, approximately 50% of all K thru 8th grade 
students plus 15 high schoolers enjoy an afternoon of healthful skiing 
without formal instruction. 

Sincere THANK YOU's again this year to all the instructors, helpers 
and part-time volunteers who keep the program viable. Special note 
should be made for the work of Sue Kling and Debbie O'Brien for getting 
the children ready at schoo!, to Debbie McGoff for volunteering to ride the 
bus and answer the thousand and one questions each week, to Robin 
Taylor for managing the raffle and to all involved who merit individual 
recognition but for whom space is lacking.

ORFORD SWIM REPORT 

This year's swim program was once again a success. Teresa Valencia 
was hired as the swimming instructor for classes held at Indian Pond. The 
instructor, with advice from the committee, reviewed previous years' files 
and reports and tentatively scheduled times for review and testing of 
skills. After this was accomplished, classes of 5-10 students of similar 
levels were given time slots and the program was on its way. 

About 96 swimmers participated in this year's program. The grand 
finale was a picnic and a swim across the pond by advanced classes. 
Althea Goundrey, with necessary flotation devices, monitored the swim by 
boat. All the students improved under Coach Teddy's guidance. Pocket 
sized certificates were given to all those who successfully completed the 
lessons. Thanks to all the children who participated. 

The Swim Committee was very pleased with Coach Teddy as an 
instructor. We are looking forward to having her back next season. Thank 
you for a job well done. 

Also Jenny Mack and Anais Aguirre were a great help as aides and 
managing the large group of children. Thank you, Jenny and Anais, for 
your time and effort. Thanks to Gene Dyke and his crew for getting the 
docks in and out of the water. Many thanks to the townfolks who fetched 
our "free floating" raft and retrieved it for the lessons. Many thanks to the 
parents and townspeople who provided support, especially for our end of 
season celebration. 

Our plans for next season include a more secure anchoring for the 
floating raft and a ladder to aid the smaller children onto it. Also, we 
hope to plant some shade trees and get more sand for the beach area. 

Thank you all for your support.

ORFORD VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT REPORT 

In 1992 the Orford Volunteer Fire Department responded to 41 calls. 
This number of calls represents an increase of 157% from 1991 and a 
273% increase over 1990. The types of calls were as follows: 



Mutual Aid 


14 


Car Accidents 


8 


Chimney Fires 


7 


Power Lines 


4 


Illegal Burns 


3 


Car Fires 


2 


Fire Alarms 


2 


Floods 


1 



The increase in the number of calls and the purchase of new air 
packs made it difficult to stay within the department's budget. To limit the 
amount of the department's cost, the volunteer members voted to forego 
their wages for the year. 

After the Selectmen advised the Fire Department of the lack of funds 
to replace Tanker #4 (a 1963 Ford Truck), it was decided during the 
November meeting by unanimous vote to remove the tanker from further 
service to Mutual Aid calls. The poor condition of Tanker #4 has made it 
an unsafe emergency response vehicle. Currently, the state of restora- 
tion of Tanker #4 is questionable and it remains out-of-service for both 
Mutual Aid calls and Orford's calls. 

The 1970 Orford's Volunteer Fire Department consisted of 22 mem- 
bers, the current membership is down to 8. Of these eight (8) members 
only two (2) have completed the Basic Certification Course, a require- 
ment since 1987. A significant factor in the reduction of firefighters is 
both the cost and time required of training and the purchase of new 
equipment. For the first time since joining the Upper Valley Regional 
Emergency Service Association, Orford was unable to respond to a Mutual 
Aid call because of a lack of firefighters. 

Respectfully submitted, 
ARTHUR DENNIS, Chief

ORFORD FREE LIBRARY 
Annual Report for 1992 

Orford Free together with Orford Social Library held a five week sum- 
mer reading program for children in the area. The program was conducted 
by Milada Harlow from Lyme who familiarized those present with the 
environments of the open fields, woods and wetlands through pictures, 
games and stories. The final session was held at the home of the Craig 
Putnam family who helped us become acquainted with life around and in- 
side a fresh water pond. 

We have enjoyed the by-monthly visits of the second-graders accom- 
panied by their teacher, Sue Kling, and her assistants. Eight students have 
used our reference library to research a variety of subjects. Three visitors 
combined vacation with genealogical investigation. 

Some 60 people, in addition to our school children, have used our 
Library throughout the year. The number could be increased if each repeat 
visit were to be added. It has been most encouraging to have parents 
come with their pre-school children - reading to them, helping them to 
select books, guiding them in the care of and letting them assist in the 
steps to borrowing books. 

The library continues to try to meet the State Library Standards of an 
Associate Library which is our category because of the population of the 
town, The standards are: periodical updating of reference materials, the 
attendance of regional forum meetings and library conference. For librar- 
ians who have no formal training in librarianship, the School of Life Long 
Learning offers 8 technical courses. This past year the librarian attended a 
14-week Micro-computer course for Librarians for which a scholarship of 
$300 was awarded. 

The computer continues to be a useful tool for interlibrary loans. A 
van service which included the Orford Libraries was begun by the State 
this year. Drop-off has been either at the Orford High School or during 
vacations at the Orford Social Library. 

A surprise gift of $300 was received from the Lebanon Fraternal Order 
of Eagles to be used for either audio cassettes or large-print books. 
Sixteen books on cassettes have been purchased. 

We appreciate the gifts of books and magazines that have been do- 
nated, the assistance of faithful volunteers, the support received from the 
Friends of Orford Libraries, and the financial support received from the 
Town of Orford.

ORFORD SOCIAL LIBRARY REPORT 

The Orford Social Library has had a very frustrating year and in one 
way, unhappy. Our very special Librarian, Sheila Thomson, retired after 
years of devoted service to us and to the people of Orford. We have lost 
a friend who gave of her time, her knowledge and a great deal of finan- 
cial support. We find it impossible to find words to adequately express our 
appreciation. So we will say it simply - Thank you, Sheila. 

The Trustees tapped many sources for a Librarian and finally found 
Mrs. Anne Cummings of Newbury, VT. Anne did an admirable job in a very 
new situation for her. It unfortunately lasted but a few months due to 
changing circumstances in her family. We thank her for her time and her 
interest. 

What started as a dire year ended as a fairy tale "happy ever after," 
when our youngest Trustee, Sarah Putnam, told us she would give up her 
Trusteeship and take the Librarian's position. Her decision has proven to 
be right for all. Having been a teacher in the Orford School, she is in tune 
with the needs of the pupils and teachers from the Elementary Grades. 
Sarah is also in tune with the adult needs, a plus for all concerned. 

Our Library continues to be a busy place. Our meeting room is used 
on a regular basis for the Fast Squad, the Friends and other groups. 

The Trustees thank our many volunteers who work on a regular basis. 
Special thanks are in arder for our summer visitor who sanded and painted 
our front porch, a very much needed service.

THE ORFORD PLANNING BOARD REPORT 

In 1992, Trunzo, Nickels, Putnam, and Bryant continued their terms as 
regular members, and Bischoff continued as an alternate. Martin May and 
Harold Taylor's terms were up, and Paul Dalton and Chase Kling were 
elected to their positions. Kling relinquished his Planning Board position as 
he was also elected Selectman; James Hook was appointed to fill his 
term. Kling served as the Selectmen's representative to the Planning 
Board, Gerald Pease and Shawn Washburn were appointed as alternates, 
making a full Board. 

During the year, the Board approved one minor two-lot subdivision, 
one major two-lot suddivision, and two lot-line adjustments, for a net 
increase of two building lots in the town. In addition, an application for 
one minor three-lot subdivision was submitted but was not yet completed 
by the end of the year. The improvements to the Bear Tree subdivision 
were completed. The appeal of the Planning Board's denial of the original 
plan for a 15— lot subdivision on Stonehouse Mountain Road is still pending 
in Grafton County Superior Court. A new application proposing ten lots for 
the same 376 acre parcel was submitted to the Board, and a preliminary 
public hearing was held. The significance of offsite impact (for instance, 
traffic on roads leading to the proposed subdivision) was one issue dis- 
cussed. This application was also not yet complete at year's end, 

An excavation permit was renewed for one sand and gravel pit. A 
review of the status of gravel pits and incomplete subdivisions was 
made. 

The Planning Board initiated discussion on revision of the Subdivision 
Regulations, with aims of making them easier to understand and more 
consistent. Issues of definition of subdivision and minimum lot size were 
discussed. The revision process is continuing, and will include public 
hearings before changes are adopted. 

A public hearing on Flood Plain Regulations was held. The Planning 
Board recommended the adoption of the regulations, which set standards 
for construction in the flood plain, and make it possible for people with 
houses in the flood plain to get flood plain insurance. The Flood Plain 
Ordinance was adopted by Town Meeting.

ORFORD POLICE REPORT 

1992 was a challenging year for the Orford Police Department with 
emphasis shifted from normal police services to that of a service oriented 
(legal assists, social service referral, etc.) agency. Service calls account- 
ed for approximately 65% of my duties. A full disclosure of my activity is 
listed below. 

Drug abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) was again instructed 
within the school. This program was presented to the 95 students in 
grades K, 1,2, 3, 4, and 6. I would like to point out that all of the teaching 
aids and incentives for this program are provided through donations from 
private organizations and individuals. To deal with these donations, the 
Orford DARE Committee was formed. 

Working with New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency, I was able to 
bring several programs into the community this year which included: 
o the "Captain Smyle" program: this is a general safety program for 

students in grades K through 4; and 
o the "Occupant Protection Usage" program: a program designed to 

demonstrate the effectiveness of seatbelts to students in grades 11 

ans 12. 

It should also be noted that application was made and approved for a 
matching funds grant to obtain a new radar unit. This was done as the old 
unit did not meet state certification standards. Some of these monies 
were federal funds provided by the National Safety Administration, U.S. 
Department of Transportation. 

A "Bicycle Rodeo" was presented in conjunction with the "Bicycle 
Safety"program conducted within the school. This required the students to 
demonstrate their proficiency in riding according to the rules of the road. 
Prizes, donated by various civic organizations, were awarded to those that 
accumulated the highest scores. It should also be noted that two new 
bicycles were given away in an open drawing. 

Working with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, I was 
able to bring the "Hunter Education Program" into the community. This 
was done at the request of several students as the program had not been 
offered here for some time. I was also able to identify several new 
instructors from within the community. 

Equipment obtained this year included the new radar, a polaroid cam- 
era, a dog catchall pole, a word processor, and an office shredder. All of 
these items were obtained through bids to guarantee the most for your tax 
dollar. 

Statistical information for the year is listed below. Again you will note 
an increase of 70% over calls for service received last year:

In closing, I would like to thank everyone that assisted me this past 
year. I would also like to remind everyone that they should practice 
"Crime Prevention" on a daily basis; lock your house when you leave and 
take the keys from your vehicle when it is left unattended. Do not give 
somebody the opportunity to turn you into a victim.

ORFORD HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT TOWN REPORT 

As you know, we had a very icy winter last year which put a heavy 
demand on our equipment and our maintenance budget. The old 1 ton 
Chevy truck broke down a lot with brake failure, rear axle trouble and, if 
that wsn't enough, the sander broke down at least twice a storm. This put 
a strain on man hours to fix it and money to repair it. We have addressed 
this problem by purchasing the new one ton truck and by leasing a sander 
which, with the Town's help, we will purchase this year. 

We also had a disastrous spring which broke up our asphalt roads and 
washed out our dirt roads. These types of things you don't know are going 
to happen, so very rarely are there extra funds in the budget to cover 
them. Fortunately, I was able to put the roads back together for a 
relatively small amount of money, but it took almost all of our gravel and 
reconstruction funds to do it. This meant we had to cut back on some of 
the items that had been budgeted for this year, like roadside cutting, in- 
stalling few culverts, buying less gravel and cutting back time spent in 
general on all our roads. It wasn't easy absorbing all these costs in the 
budget, but it had to be done, so we weren't looking at a huge overage in 
the highway budget this year. 

We did make some progress however. We redecked and installed 
railings on a bridge on Grimes Hill and ditched and installed new culverts 
on Archertown Road. After researching how to get the most for our 
money, we were able to pave a 6 tenths of a mile stretch using a pug mill 
mix on Archertown Road. We also replaced culverts on Cemetery Road, 
Quinttown Road, Andrews Road and repaired several others. 

This year we also built a screen for screening our winter sand. This 
will save on the equipment's taking a beating when rocks go through the 
spreaders and also make the sand cover better. 

I would like to thank the Townspeople for purchasing the new 1 ton 
truck. So far this year it has worked out well for us. 

Sincerely, 
PETER ANGWIN 
Road Agent

REPORT OF TOWN FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
and STATE FOREST RANGER 

1992 was below average for wildfires reported in our state. Our 
largest fire was in May in Rumney where a suspicious origin fire burned 
approximately 150 acres with a total cost of approximately $30,000. The 
N.H. Division of Forests and Lands assisted many other communities in 
wildland fire suppression as well 

Our fire lookout towers reported 289 fires, burning a total of 136 
acres. Our major causes of fires were fires kindled without a permit, un- 
known causes and childen. 

Please help your town and state forest fire officials with fire protec- 
tion. New Hampshire State Law (RSA 224:27) requires that, "No person, 
firm or corporation shall kindle or cause to be kindled any fire or burn or 
cause to be burned any material in the open, except when the ground is 
covered with snow, without first obtaining a written fire permit from the 
Forest Fire Warden of the town where the burning is to be done. " Viola- 
tion of this statute is a midemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 
and/or a year in jail and you are liable for all fire suppression costs 

Local fire departments are responsible for suppressing fires. The small 
average fire size of .47 acre/fire is a tribute to early detection by the 
public or our fire tower system and the quick response of our trained local 
fire departments. Please help your Warden and fire department by 
requesting and obtaining a fire permit before kindling an open fire. 

The N.H. Division of Forests and Lands assisted 28 towns with a total 
of $20,000 in 50/50 cost share grants for fire fighter safety items and 
wildland suppression equipment in 1992. 

If you have any questions regarding New Hampshire forest fire laws, 
please contact your local Forest Fire Warden, State Forest Ranger, or 
Division of Forests and Lands at 271-2217.

UPPER VALLEY LAKE SUNAPEE COUNCIL 
1992 Report to Member Communities 
Who We Are 

There are nine Regional Planning Commissions in New Hampshire and 
12 in Vermont. Like the others, the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional 
Planning Commission is a private, non-profit corporation enabled by state 
legislation. Our organization consists of the following people: 
Board of Directors: Each member town is entitled to at least two mem- 
bers on the Board of Directors. This Board is the Upper Valley Lake Sun- 
apee Regional Planning Commission, and approves the annual work pro- 
gram and budget. This group meets three or four time per year. 
Executive Committee: Most of the authority for overseeing day to day 
operations of UVLSRPC has been delegated to this Committee, made up of 
members of the Board of Directors. The Executive Committee meets 
monthly. 

Staff: There are five full-time and four part-time staff members. The 
full-time staff includes four planners and a secretary/receptionist. The 
part-time staff includes a bookkeeper, map/graphics person and two 
planners. 
Service Standards 

In our day-to-day operations we are: 

Objective: We have no axe to grind. We don't work for developers. We 

work for you. 

Flexible: What we know, we share. What we don't know, we find out. 

When we can't provide a service, we know who can. 

Responsive: When you call, write, or drop by, we respond. 

Competent: UVLSRPC has a qualified, experienced staff, familiar with 

the area, the towns, the people, the issues. 

Stable: Consultants come and go - we will celebrate our 30th year of 

service in 1993. 
Where The Money Goes 

Most of the money comes from four major sources: dues, the states of 
New Hampshire and Vermont, local technical assistance via contracts with 
member communities, and transportation planning. Overall, your dues 
support just one fourth of our operation. For each dollar of dues, we ob- 
tain about three dollars of additional funding which we use for services to 
the region. 

Where the money goes is simple: people. We invest most of the 
money in our staff, buying brains, education, and experience. The rest 
pays for an office, telephones, small computers, and mapping equipment; 
the basics necessary for the people to do the job. 
What We Do 
Overall, our duties fall into two categories: 

Provide services to member Towns 

Address regional issues 
Services to Towns 

Questions: We spend a lot of time on the telephone, at meetings, and 

in our office answering questions about planning issues, based on our 

cumulative experience and expertise. 



- 70 - 



UPPER VALLEY LAKE SUNAPEE COUNCIL - 

Answers: We provide detailed answers to detailed questions. Examples 
include: reviewing an ordinance, providing a linkage to a state or fed- 
eral program, reviewing a proposed development project, explaining 
how a certain aspect of planning usually works, investingating what is 
appropriate in a given situation, exploring alternative solutions for a 
particular problem. 

Information: In addition to staff expertise, we maintain a library of 
pertinent planning information. We are a US Census data affiliate. 
In-Depth Support We do transportation planning, master plans, ordi- 
nances, natural resource planning, capital improvement programs, im- 
pact fee studies, opinion surveys, impact studies for large projects, 
and other special studies of many sorts. A number of towns also take 
advantage of our circuit rider planning program. Usually, we must 
charge in addition to dues for support in depth, to meet our expenses 
and to break even. This type of support is available only to member 
communities. We do not do any work for private companies or indi- 
viduals. These services are available at far less cost than for compar- 
able expertise from a private consulting firm. 

Regional Issues 

We also provide a forum for regional issues. Currently we are work- 
ing regionally on transportation planning, economic development, 
solid waste, energy, and studies related to Lake Sunapee and the 
Connecticut River. We are almost always able to support these efforts 
with state funds and/or special grants. 

Additional Areas of Special Expertise 

Transportation Planning - Regional transportation planning is at the 
top of the list of regional concerns and priorities. We prepared a Reg- 
ional Transportation Plan during 1992. We are working with member 
towns, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, and the 
Vermont Agency of Transportation to assure that local and regional 
concerns are heard and addressed. 

GIS - Geographic Information Systems - We work with a number of 
member towns to provide maps and analyses for Master Plans, utili- 
ties, and special land evaluation studies. 

Evironmental Planning - Includes solid waste and water quality plan- 
ning. 

- Land Preservation - Support and cooperation with area land preserva- 
tion efforts. 

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission also pro- 
vides specific services to communities on a contract basis. During 1992, 
as requested by member communities, we 

conducted impact studies regarding proposed development, 

provided assistance with Master Plans, 

worked on amendments/updates to local ordinances and regulations, 

drafted new ordinances, 

supplied regularly scheduled "circuit rider" planning services, and 

provided general mapping, drafting, and other technical assistance. 



- 71 - 



UPPER VALLEY LAKE SUNAPEE COUNCIL - 

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission looks 
forward to serving your community during the coming year. Please feel 
free to contact us for more information about specific activities in your 
community, or whenever we can be of assistance.

1992 Report to the Town of Orford 

We are pleased to have the opportunity to report on the activities of 
Home and Community Health Care for 1992, our fourth year of providing

clude skilled nursing, physical and occupational therapy, home health 
aide, homemaking and medical social services, and hospice care to the 
terminally ill. We are now able to make services available 24 hours a day, 
weekends and holidays included and to offer a private duty program, Help 
at Home. 

Home visits provided by our staff for persons in the Town of Orford 
were as follows

TRI-COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM 

Tri-County Community Action Program (CAP) provides comprehensive 
and effective Outreach Services to Orford residents. The services are pro- 
vided locally through Lebanon In Service to Each Neighbor (LISTEN, Inc.). 
Both agencies are private nonprofit organizations incorporated in New 
Hampshire nearly 20 years ago. Tri-County CAP serves Grafton, Carroll 
and Coos counties while LISTEN'S service area focuses on southern Graf- 
ton County in New Hampshire and northern Windsor County in Vermont. 

The CAP outreach service objectives complement LISTEN'S mission: To 
ensure that Upper Valley residents have the resources to become eco- 
nomically independent. The economic health of the Upper Valley is 
reflected in the type and number of CAP outreach services provided at 
LISTEN. CAP requests funding support from area towns for three of the 
five programs offered at LISTEN: food assistance, housing and utility as- 
sistance, financial counseling and advocacy. (The other two programs, 
Child and Family Enrichment and the Thrift Stores are not supported by 
town funding.) LISTEN also acts as the local intake site for CAP's Fuel 
Assistance Program. 

The past two years have witnessed a dramatic increase in the de- 
mand for CAP outreach services. Overall services increased by approxi- 
mately 25% from 1990-91: Housing and Utility Assistance plus 40%, Food 
Assistance plus 23%, Financial Counseling & Advocacy plus 52% 

LISTEN provides CAP outreach services to Orford residents in a most 
cost efficient way. Costs are kept low by extensive use of volunteer serv- 
ices and donated goods. LISTEN'S three CAP outreach programs Food, 
Housing & Utility, Financial Counseling and Advocacy help prevent eco- 
nomic crisis which might result in further demands on the town welfare 
department. When an economic crisis does present itself, LISTEN offers 
special emergency funds and individualized counseling which may sup- 
plement the resources available through the town welfare department.

UPPER VALLEY AMBULANCE 

Upper Valley Ambulance, Inc. has continued to meet the complex 
challenge of providing emergency transport ambulance service to the 
eight town region. UVA has enjoyed a very successful year in 1992. Our 
efforts to keep costs down for the Townspeople by diversifying operations 
have been flourishing. We are very pleased to announce that because of 
our success, the Board of Directors has voted to decrease the per resident 
fee for the eight member towns from $14 to $11. The Board also approved 
a measure so the eight towns are no longer required to guarantee pay- 
ment of ambulance bills which are not paid by the patient. These two 
measures should have a positive effect upon the Town Budgets for the 
eight member towns. 

Now, to summarize the activities of the Upper Valley Ambualnce. The 
primary focus for the ambulance service is to provide transport services. 
We project a volume of 480 emergency patient transports from the eight 
town area for the year. Also, we expect to do 260 non-emergency trans- 
fers. UVA was awarded the contracts from DHMC to do the ICN (Intensive 
Care Nursery) and the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) transports. We 
have done 170 of these transports in five months. In addition UVA has 
continued to transport radiation therapy patients from the Lebanon facility 
to Hanover for treatment and back. Of course, even though we are doing 
these non-emergency services, there is no compromise of the ambulance 
service to serve its primary mission of providing emergency services in 
the eight town coverage area. 

We continue to use a mix of full-time and part-time paid ambulance 
personnel. The day-to-day operations of the ambulance service are being 
expertly managed by John Vose, Administrator/Paramedic and Kevin Cole, 
Field Supervisor, who report to the committee of Town Directors, who are 
appointed by the selectmen of the towns. UVA has strived to become a 
focal point for training for the local F.A.S.T. Squads and Fire Departments 
in the region. We have 85 participants in the ECA, EMT, and EMT-I courses 
which have been coordinated by UVA. We have a very active explorer 
cadet program which currently involves ten high school students. Members 
of UVA have taught CPR classes to more than 60 local people. Also, 
classes on First Aid, safety and CPR were done in local schools and busi- 
nesses. John coordinated "Operation Prom Night", a simulated drunk driv- 
ing accident for Thetford Academy which was televised on TV 31. UVA 
provided standby ambulance coverage at community events, such as 
races in Thetford, the antique car show in Orford, the Bradford Fair, and 
the Triathlon in Fairlee. 

You, as a resident of one of the eight towns, have the opportunity to 
support this vital service to the region. There are several ways you can 
take advantage of the opportunity to provide support. 

First , and perhaps the most important, you can continue to support 
the regional emergency transport ambulance service with your vote at 
Town Meeting. Your vote is needed to approve operating costs for the 
Upper Valley Ambulance Service. Second , you can support the Upper Val- 
ley Ambulance with your tax deductible donation. Third , you can provide 
support by volunteering time.

ther information.

GRAFTON COUNTY SENIOR CITIZENS COUNCIL 
Annual Report - 1992 

Grafton County Senior Citizens Council, Inc. provides services to old- 
er residents of Orford. These services include home delivered meals, a 
senior dining room program, transportation, adult day care, outreach and 
social work services, health screening and education, recreation, informa- 
tion and referral, as well as opportunities for older individuals to be of 
service to their communities through volunteering. 

Any Orford resident over the age of 60 or members of his/her family 
are eligible to use the services of GCSCC. Handicapped individuals under 
the age of 60 may also be served through these programs. Although there 
are no charges for the service, the Agency does request contributions to- 
ward the cost of services. 

During 1992, 82 older Orford residents were served through all of 
GCSCC's programs. 78 individuals enjoyed dinners at the Orford Senior 
Center or received hot meals delivered to their homes; 4 elders used 
transportation services on 75 occasions to travel to medical appointments, 
to grocery stores, to do personal errands or to the Senior Center. 16 
Orford volunteers contributed 1,830 hours of time, energy and talent to 
support the operation of the Agency's services. 3 others participated in 
recreational and educational programs or used our information and referral 
service; 6 older people used the services of our social workers. Services 
for Orford residents were instrumental in supporting many of these indi- 
viduals as they attempted to remain in their own homes and out of insti- 
tuional care despite physical frailties. 

Working closely with other agencies, providing services to older 
people in the community, our goals for the future include additional 
efforts to assist the older Orford residents and their families in taking 
advantage of available programs and services which will improve the 
quality of their lives and enable them to remain independent in their own 
community. 

Through the years, GCSCC has very much appreciated the support of 
the Orford community for services which enhance the independence of 
older residents of Orford. This support is much more critical at a time of 
Federal and State funding constraints.

GRAFTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS' 1992 REPORT TO TOWNS 

Grafton County has continued to operate in a financially sound, cost 
effective manner. We are pleased that the $13.5 million budget adopted 
in late June showed a modest 3.45% increase. 

While the county property tax increased to $6.1 million after two 
years of decreases, the average annual county tax increase since 1989 
has been less than 3%. Under state law, $3.5 million or 58% of the county 
tax dollars collected from Grafton County taxpayers in 1992 were sent to 
Concord to pay the county share of stste assistance programs (Old Age 
Assistance, Aid to the Disabled, Medicaid/Nursing Assistance, and Serv- 
ices for Children & Youth). 

The Grafton County Nursing Home has continued to offer high quality 
medical, nursing, and support services to approximately 120 elderly and 
infirm residents while meeting the stricter federal Medicaid mandates 
imposed in 1991. The Special Needs Unit for individuals with Alzheimers 
Disease and similar illnesses, opened last year, has been especially well 
received by residents, families and staff, during 1993 the County plans to 
expand the unit from 11 to 32 beds. 

The County Department of Corrections saw a 15% increase in in- 
mates over the past year. Drug forfeiture funds from the Attorney 
General's Office have enabled the department to increase and coordinate 
drug and alcohol abuse reduction programs with the goal of decreasing 
the number of repeat offenders. 

Again during 1992 the County Farm generated a modest operating 
surplus, providing work opportunities for County Corrections inmates and 
supplying meat and vegetables for the Nursing Home and Jail. For the 
second year the Farm also produced pototoes for the local food pantries 
throughout the County. 

The Commissioners, Sheriff and Assistant Sheriff implemented the 
second phase of a 3-year plan to ensure that subscribers pay the full cost 
of telephone answering services provided by the County Dispatch Center. 
The county also replaced the radio repeater on Cannon Mountain in order 
to upgrade law enforcement communications throughout Grafton County. 

During 1992 the County distrubuted over $78,836.00 in state Incent- 
ive Funds to local programs that prevent out-of-home placements of 
troubled children and youth. The County has also continued to provide 
Youth and Family mediation services available free-of-charge in Leban- 
on, Littleton and Plymouth areas. 

Looking ahead to the late 1990's and beyond, the Commissioners 
initiated Long Range Planning as part of the annual budget process. A 
committee of county officials has been charged with recommending plans 
for addressing the needs of the county and state offices now housed at 
the Courthouse. 

The County sponsored a Community Development Block Grant for the 
AHEAD Agency in Littleton, a non-profit housing development organi- 
zation. Funds are being used to purchase and rehabilitate multifamilty 
rental housing units for the benefit of low- and moderate-income house- 
holds in the northern part of Grafton County. 



- 76 



During 1992 the Commissioners continued efforts to inform county 
residents about county government, encouraging tours of county facili- 
ties and holding information sessions for local officials and other groups. 

The Grafton County Board of Commissioners holds regular weekly 
meetings on Tuesdays (note change from Thursdays) at 9:00 a.m. at the 
Administration Building on Route 10 in North Haverhill. All meetings are 
open to the public, and we encourage attendance by public and the press. 
Please call the Commissioner's Office at 787-6941 for further informa-tion 
or to request a speaker or our slide show on county government for school 
and civic groups. 

In closing we wish to express our sincere appreciation to local offi- 
cials, agencies and the public for cooperating in our efforts to serve the 
citizens of Grafton County. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

GRAFTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE DISTRICT PRINCIPAL 

Personnel : 

Three faculty members joined the Orford School District Staff this 
year. 

Tracy Sherrill, a native of Cape Cod, earned her degree in educa- 
tion with a concentration in mathematics, from Fitchburg State College. 
For the past two years she has been teaching upper elementary school in 
London, England. At Orford she is teaching math in grades 6,7,8. 

Steve Schultz, currently on leave of absence from the fifth grade 
position, received his B.S. from the University of Maryland and his M.A. 
from Syracuse University. He trained with the Upper Valley Teacher 
Training Program and taught with the Bethel School system during the 
spring of 1992 

James Wiggenhorn, the district computer teacher, has taught in 
Texas, Kansas and Massachusetts. Jim graduated from Highland Univers- 
ity in Las Vegas, New Mexico, receiving a B.A. in Education. He took 
additional courses at the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas. 

In December, with the restructuring of the grade five program, two 
teachers were hired to replace Mr. Schultz. Maria lanello received her 
B.S. in Child Psychology from the University of Connecticut. She also 
served as an intern with the Upper Valley Teaching Training Program. 
Tim Shay received his B.A. and M.A. from Green Mountain College. He 
taught for three years at the Tully Elementary School, Tully, New York. 

The Orford School Board accepted the resignation of Patricia Dav- 
enport as Principal at its December meeting. The Board is currently 
working on a plan to recruit a new Principal. 
Enrollment : 

Student enrollment, grades K-5, is at 100. There are 61 students in 
the middle school. The High School enrollment is 105 students. Total 
tuition enrollment for the district is 80. 
District Goals : 

Susan Hollins, Assistant Superintendent, and Patricia Davenport, Princi- 
pal, suggested that the Orford School Board set district goals at budget 
time to assure that funding reflects district needs. This year the suggest- 
ed goals are to study structure of the school district and the viability of 
the high school, to review school board policies regarding class size, 
kindergarten entry age, special education, and communication with the 
public, and handling community concerns. The Board will be setting 
goals at the February meeting.

AUDITOR'S CERTIFICATE 

This is to certify that we have examined the books, vouchers, bank 
statements and other financial records of the Treasurer of the School 
District of Orford of which the above is a true summary of the fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1992 and find them correct in all respects. 

CHARLES PETERS 
ROBB R. THOMSON 

The financial statements on the next pages have been prepared on 
the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with generally accepted 
accounting principles. This method of accounting recognizes accounts re- 
ceivable and accounts payable as revenue and expense in the year in 
which earned and incurred rather than the year in which received or paid. 
The school District Treasurer's books of account are maintained on the 
cash basis in accordance with generally accepted public school prac- 
tices.

VITAL RECORDS IN THE TOWN REPORT 

It is permissible to list vital events in town reports, however 
the format used must conform to the guidelines of confidentiality 
as required by State Statues and Administrative Rule, Vit. 703. 02 

When publishing vital events in town reports the following 

may be used in accordance with RSA 126:14. 

(1) A written request from a resident that a particular 
vital event be omitted from the town report shall always 
be granted. 

(2) A written request from a resident registrant that a 
certain event be published in the town report, even 
when it involves the birth of a child to an unwed 
mother, shall be granted. 

(3) Items of information that may be shown in a town 
report shall be as follows: 

BIRTH Date, child's name, name of father &c mother, place of 

birth.

LOG MUST BE RETURNED TO VITAL RECORDS BEFORE ADDt 
TIONAL "SAFE" PAPER WILL BE ISSUED. 

EACH VITAL RECORD COPY IS $10. 00. EACH ADDITIONAL COPY

THE AUTOMATED SYSTEMS ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED. EVEN- 
TUALLY EACH TOWN CLERK WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE COPIES 
OF VITAL RECORDS VIA COMPUTER HOOK-UPS TO THE CON- 
CORD OFFICE. THE INCREASE IN VITAL RECORD COPIES IS 
PAYING TO SUPPLY EACH OFFICE WITH THE NECESSARY
